And what about his expectations – had I over-used Instagram filters? When we finally did meet face to face, I was relieved that there was still a spark, although in the end, he wasn’t everything I’d expected.People are far more complex in real life than you can ever appreciate before you meet.
When I decided things wouldn’t go further than a second date, the thought that I had shared so many parts of my life with this man through my photos made me feel quite vulnerable.
